Weekend Shenanigans

The working mom struggle is real you guys! I stayed home with Zoe on Friday and took her to the doctor. We are battling another cold and ear infection. Girlfriend really wasn’t herself all weekend. I wanted to stay at home with her again today, but at the same time, I’d also like to keep my job. Since she didn’t have a fever, I dropped her off at daycare this morning and feel like the worst mom ever. What can you do?

This weekend we didn’t do a whole lot since Zoe was sick. We went over to Chris’s parents house for a little bit on Saturday. Zoe got to walk around in grass for the first time. It was so funny! The rest of the day was spent snuggling and watching TV. I did manage to get the floors cleaned during Zoe’s nap. And I made a delicious breakfast casserole that I will post the recipe for soon. It has tater tots!!!

Sunday, we headed to the grocery store and got Mexican for lunch. Zoe ate all of my beans and half my rice. She also ate a good portion of her soft taco.

While Zoe napped, Chris and I played a game of Monopoly on the Switch. He spent all his money putting houses on three of his properties and basically caused me to go bankrupt in two turns. I had so much more money than him before that.

We had fettuccine alfredo for dinner and started watching 9-1-1. The show is intense! Chris and I decided that by the end of it, we will probably never leave the couch again. I think it ruined roller coasters for Chris. I already avoided them at all costs, and that episode just solidified that decision for me. Have you seen it?

Back to reality today. It is supposed to be in the 70’s here most days this week. Crazy! Though, it is all gloomy and rainy, so don’t be too jealous. The change in weather has reminded me that I need to really get back on the treadmill to work on my summer body. Oops.

Linking up with Biana. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

    You have got me sooo intrigued on 911. We have been looking for a new binge. We started Riverdale but Mr. Nine isn’t loving it, only like, lol. Very gloomy and raining here too. Mmmm a breakfast casserole with tots….I’m so in. Hope today goes well for you mama and sweet Zoe!

    I need to check out 911. And that breakfast casserole, man does that look yummy! Sorry Zoe is still sick, hope she makes it all day and you do too! Sounds like a great weekend!

    I’ve heard really good things about 911! And I’m pumped for 70 degree weather, even if it comes with some doom and gloom. I can’t wait for sunshine and nice temps so Sheffield can run around outside all afternoon. Anything with tater tots is a win for me! ( I also typed out “wine” for me and had to backspace through it – clearly you know where my mind is right now)

    LOL, I remember the first time that Abel walked on grass, He was like WTF??? So funny.
    All forms of breakfast casserole are a hit around here. 🙂

    I saw previews for 911 & it looks so good!

  • Reply Amy February 19, 2018 at 1:38 pm

    Omg all of that food looks so good. I love a good cheesy breakfast casserole! Weather here is basically the same. I played tennis yesterday and actually got a little sun. Let’s not talk about summer bodies though… ugh

    Who has time to work out lol! I feel like between kids and just life in general there really aren’t enough hours in the day. I’m sorry that Zoe is still not feeling 100%! It really does suck when babies feel bad and you can’t do too much for them, although the baby snuggles are amazing I’m sure!

    Poor Zoe. Having an ear infection myself for 2 weeks, I feel her pain. I dont know how little ones handle it – it makes me want to cry.
    The good thing about her being there – it may distract her from feeling bad 🙂 Kids are entertaining to one another

    I had never heard of this show until just now but I’m so intrigued! I’m sure my husband would love it and could definitely relate. Plus we’ve been trying to find a new show to watch lately. Hope Zoe feels better soon!

    Sick kids are pitiful.

    9-1-1 sounds like an anxiety attack waiting to happen.

    I hope Zoe is feeling beter soon! That breakfast casserole looks amazing – I can’t wait for the recipe and to try it!!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag February 19, 2018 at 8:22 pm

    Aw, I’m sorry to hear about Zoe. I hope she starts feeling better soon. My youngest niece has some sort of cold going on, and I saw her a lot yesterday so I’m HOPING I don’t get whatever she was battling, but we’ll see. haha

    Mmm…that breakfast looks super yummy! The weather was nice today, but I think more rain is coming the rest of the week.

    The breakfast casserole sounds yummy. I hope Zoe bounces back fast! Poor little girl 🙁
    I love that you and Chris play video games together. K is NOT a gamer but he said he’d probably play Mario Kart with me if I got it for our Switch. I plan to do it, lol.
    9-1-1 seems waaaaay too intense. I’d never do anything again. I just progressed with my plane anxiety so I don’t need to regress. Hahaha

    I hope your lil lady starts to feel better real quicklike. Poor thing. 🙁

    We have ice covered roads here in Central Wisconsin so if you could send some of those warms temps our way, that would be nice. Ha!

    The working mom struggle is so hard! I can completely relate and have had many of those moments where I’ve dropped them off knowing it would probably be better to be at home. If only we had unlimited sick time or more leave as a parent. We’ve been loving 911 too! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  • Reply StephTheBookworm February 20, 2018 at 1:02 pm

    I love Monopoly! What’s Switch? I love games so I think I need this, whatever it is!
    That tater tot thing… mmm!!

    That pasta looks SO good! My boyfriend is a police officer and watches any and all law enforcement/crime shows you can think of. He wasn’t a huge fan of 9-1-1, but he’s still watching it! Haha. If you guys like shows like that, he’s really into Chicago PD (that may be because that’s where we’re from and he’s biased haha) and I’ve heard The Wire is the most accurate of all cop shows. My former boss had to actually stop watching it because of how accurate she felt it was (she’s dating a police sergeant and just couldn’t handle the commonalities between his days and what’s depicted on show). Maybe I’ve totally turned you off to any kind of crime show now! Haha
